Product Description
This is a lesson I use when exploring the topic of biotechnology with my biology students. It focuses on the ethical use of the technology. Students read about HeLa cells using the non-fiction book "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks". Students take notes while reading the book focusing on the 4 major areas of concern (handouts included) when it comes to biotechnology and the use of human tissues. Students then turn those notes into a reflective essay (prompt included) and a digitally enhanced poster. This lesson includes all of the worksheets needed, a student instruction sheet (with photos of what the posters could look like) and a grading rubric. You an chose to have it as an out of class project or give some class time for students to work (I usually allow mine a week of work time. They read the book ahead of the unit, usually when we first start genetics, then when we get to the biotechnology part, I allow 5 days of in class exploration and work time).
